There are 3 Tesla Model S versions available
Target Price team says:
You’ll be able to specify your Model S according to how far you want to travel. At a constant 55mph, the 40 kWh model has a range of 160 miles, the 60kWh version travels 230 miles and the flagship 85kWh can manage 300 miles in the same conditions. The 85kWh car is also available with a choice of two different motors, capable of 0-60mph in 5.6 and 4.4 seconds, respectively.
Although the Model S can be recharged through a conventional socket, Tesla has also developed a High Power Wall Connector, which, once installed in your garage, enables cars equipped with Twin Chargers (standard on Signature and Performance models) to be recharged twice as fast as cars equipped with a Single Charger.
